Hello,

I am a relatively new member on Fred Miranda, I was messaged by someone named MikePix after inquiring about purchasing a Sony FE 16-35mm lens from some other sellers on the forum. The lens was 930 USD through pay-pal, I asked if I could send half before and after I received the product and he said no, he also had to "ask his wife" about the price.I never heard from him after that. I advise other members to be weary of this person when purchasing.

The email he used is [email protected] and the fraudulent pay-pal account the money was transferred to is [email protected] On July 30 I sent the transfer and he said he would send the shipment on the 31, and the tracking on Aug 1st. I go on FM and his account is locked all PM's deleted, no reply from the emails. So I have opened a paypal dispute. Upon talking to Paypal this account has multiple claims against them, so be weary. I will hear back on August 12th regarding the refund, until then I am out $1200.00. I am a university student and now super anxious as my budget is super tight and 1200 is a substantial amount to lose, is there anything that can be done in this situation or did I just get scammed out of my money?

Here are two other instances from this person

Very sorry to hear about this. You should be OK after all that's why you are using PayPal.

As long as you didn't use PayPal Gift, you are OK. Good luck!

File a FBI IC3 Complaint immediately. I have had 100% results with them. This amount is a felony in all states I believe. Notify local LEO's also for police report, if they will take one.. Do this regardless of PP.
